Motel 6 Complaint - Bed Bugs
RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA -- On a trip to the East Coast in mid July, my husband, daughter, and I stopped at a Motel 6 in Rapid City, South Dakota for the night;(July 18th through the morning of 7-19). After taking a shower, I decided to get into the bed for the night. To my disgust, I found bed bugs crawling around the sheets at the head of the bed, under the pillow, and under the mattress. The bugs were in my daughter's bed too. It totally ruined my night's sleep. Then, to add to that; as I was
trying to forget about it, I got up and discovered more on my t-shirt! We eventually had to move out of that room at around 3:30am and get another room -("smoker's"-not what we wanted!) We were given a refund/credit for this but the woman at the night shift was unapologetic and cold. I will never stay at this motel or any of them again.
To say the least, check you bed linens thoroughly BEFORE you get in for the night. It was really horrible. They told us that new carpeting had been installed so thus their excuse for the bugs. Regardless, the maids should have checked the sheets (daily) to avoid this happening to anyone else in the future.
